Me and my wife done this walk while staying on Skye for a week. The initial stage (first 10-15 mins) is very steep, but there are many spectacular views to be had on this journey. Would highly recommend.

We did not walk the trail but we were staying in nearby Staffin & passed the Old Man at different times of the day with different weather conditions so had many great photo opportunities to see it in all its glory. Located on the A855.

A top destination on Skye. The views are spectacular. I'd put this at the top of places we visited on Skye. I would, however, highly recommend hiking footwear if it has been raining. It's a steep trail, which can be quite slick.

The way leading up to the Old Man of Storr is steep and you will definitely get a work out - But the views surrounds the rock and the rock itself are majestic! The rain caught up with us on the way down but it was worth being a bit chilled!

Visting the Isle Of Sky is not complete without a trip to The Old Man of Storr. It is quite easily accessible despite the fact that the path up there is steep including totalling 750 metres in height. The view from the top is absolutely spectacular on a day with good weather and the stones up there offer a mystique... More

Starts directly from the carpark which is on a main road. The walk is a defined path for only about 60% of the way up, then it is a series of paths made by travellers. This section was very muddy and water proof shoes highly recommended. Great views even if you don't go the whole way. At the top is... More

This is a must-see on Isle of Skye. Maybe it's not the easiest walk, but it's not the hardest as well. I would probably recommend some kind of trecking shoes, especially when you're going down, as it's quite steeply and slippery. The view will reward everything.

When the weather is good in Scotland you cannot beat it. Absolutely stunning view. Took a couple of hours to do the walk to the peak above The Old Man of Storr.

We took a hike to the Old Man of Storr in the morning. The walk is not very difficult. On the way, one gets splendid views of the lakes and surrounding hills. The path is very well marked and safe. Would recommend to all who visit Isle of Skye
